Wow, that is a great deal.

haha, too many is the answer!

we're facing an imminent move here, and this is one of those bikes i would rather see someone riding, than me moving and squirrilling away in cold storage.

I can’t believe that out of all your bikes, you are selling one of my favorite ones. Someone grab this one of a kind bike. Bi lam, that fork and the damn matching fenders. So good

Almost but no cigar

The zanc and Kirk > those two

Moots pista for the win. Technically I think it’s a single speed since drilled for brakes.

I feel like I can't make a decision until I see the full roster ... I don't want buyers remorse

haha, this will probably be the nicest bike i'm going to try and sell, but in reality, selling bikes is a massive pain in the rear.

someone buy this thing already. i'm stealing the parts for another project and it's getting broken down tonight.

I have a Jamie Swan, fantastic bike. The precision with which Jamie works is very impressive. If this fits it is a no-brainer, especially this one with such beautiful construction techniques on display.

yes, i may just come to my senses, strip this one down and put it in cold storage for a while.

i'd rather see someone enjoy it, so i'll keep it up for a while.
